CareerWise is always on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are six reports that we found interesting this week.
D2L has been engaged with education and policy leaders in conversations on how to build a resilient learning system, what skills are required to be successful in the jobs of the future and how our systems of learning need to change to be more equitable. This paper presents findings, stories and policy recommendations.
LMIC’s analysis of the earnings in broad trade categories shows that female journeypersons earn persistently less than their male counterparts. Overall, women earn 46% of what men earn eight years after receiving Red Seal certification. However, much of this discrepancy is due to women’s overrepresentation in lower-paid trades.
This report provides analyses on student growth mindset, a concept much discussed in the current field of psychology. PISA collected international comparable data on “growth mindset” from nearly 80 countries/economies for the first time in 2018. The report sheds lights on how educators, policy makers and researchers can further support the potential of students around the world.
Navigating the host labour market: International graduates need more than credentials (Centre for Global Higher Education)
This study deployed a mixed-method approach to explore how international graduates identified and strategically used their resources to negotiate employability in the host country. Results indicate that graduate employability should not just be measured right after students’ graduation because different forms of capital play significant roles at different stages of graduates’ career development.
COVID threatens to further erode sector-wide capacity for research excellence and accessible education, and therefore the many public benefits that flow from the PSE sector, and at a time when they are urgently needed to support our collective recovery. The recommendations in this report are guided by a single goal: to make the post-secondary sector a more effective partner and support in building a more equitable, sustainable and evidence-driven future for Canada.

The data includes details on program components and tools as well as an exploration of facilitating factors and barriers to the uptake of these resources from the perspective of college administration and community stakeholders.
